Awesomely Artistic: Basic Stamping Series #2

Good morning fellow stampers!

All of the cards in this month’s series are geared toward the beginning stamper. Using  limited supplies, these designs can easily be accomplished by a first time stamper.

Awesomely Artistic: Basic Stamping Series #2

Awesomely Artistic-Basic Stamping Series #2A Thanks with flowers.  wwwSaying “Thanks” is a big deal, and it’s easy to do when you stamp it yourself!

The Very Vanilla card stock is cut to 3 3/4″ x 5″. The flowers and the greeting (from the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit) are stamped in the new Basic Black Archival ink. Once the stamping is done, take about twenty inches of Linen Thread and wrap it around your stamped piece, tying a knot or bow. Pop that onto a black card base with some Stampin’ Dimensionals and add a rhinestone.  You’re done!

You don’t have to purchase a big list of supplies in order to make a nice card, start
with the basics…like one color of ink and some neutral card stock

Awesomely Artistic-Basic Stamping Series #2BBy making a few simple changes…this design can take on a new look!

I cut an additional piece of Very Vanilla and used a 2 1/2″ circle punch to cut out the center. Some speckles were added in place of the Linen Thread and the greeting was stamped on the bottom right corner, below the circle. By adding a circle over the top of the design, it makes your eye focus on that element, in this case, your eye goes directly to the flowers.

The second layer is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals, so for this card you might want to adhere the bottom layer of flowers directly to the card base before adding the second layer, that way you will avoid too much bulk.

Be sure to add a rhinestone or maybe a pearl for the finishing touch!

Until next time…
